Creating a wireless hotspot in Windows 10 is relatively straightforward by using software that is virtual router. Virtual Router is a free, open source software based router for PCs running in Windows 8, Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2. Using Virtual Router, users can wirelessly share any internet connection (Wi-Fi, LAN, Cable Modem, Dial-up, Cellular, etc.) with any Wi-Fi device (Laptop, Smart Phone, iPod Touch, iPhone, Android Phone, Zune, Notebook, wireless printer, etc.)

Step 2: Configure your network

Open the software and give the network name for the hotspot you want to create and share along with password. Now, you can start your connection.

Step 3: Make sure connection sharing is enabled

Make sure you're sharing preferences are properly enabled. To do that, first search in the Start menu for "View network connections." Find the connection you want to share (Ethernet or Wi-Fi) and right-click on the device. Choose "Properties". look at the "Sharing" tab and make sure the box "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection" is checked. Now it’s all right.

Step 4: Connect from another device and close when done

you can connect to your laptop's new WiFi hotspot as usual. The network name should show up. Just select it and enter in the password. The Virtual Router app will show other computers connecting through it when it's in use. It'll show the IP address of the device and its MAC address.
